Due in part to
asking me what the voice of my character Dracon will be
in my My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
story entitled 'My Little Pony: Beyond Life and Death'
I've decided to post this journal entry, which explains just what he sounds like..and, his overall character.
Dracon? I mean apart from being a green dragon who looks like Mushu
Well, as far as his VOICE goes, he is voiced by Max Casella
OR, as we all know him best as..fav.me/d4jzbv3
DAXTER. the "Orange Lightning"
I will be honest with you all.
at the time of creating the character, I was rather confused at what Dracon's voice was going to be.
I already settled with him being based (in part) on Mulan's Mushu character.
so, for awhile. I thought his voice would be Mark Mosley
(Mushu's secondary, and current voice actor after Eddie Murphy
I also considered Lion King's Timon voices: Nathan Lane
and Quinton Flynn.
BUT, when it became apparent that Dracon's total character was a practical mirror image of Daxter.
I settled with Max Casella, and everything just fell into place for me.
apart from the voice, Dracon and Daxter are similar in character and "physical appearance"
(by that, I mean that Dracon is pretty much the same size as Daxter. which is a bit bigger than Mushu, according to Kingdom Hearts.)
For visual aid, I have prepared some videos for you all (and, they are good ones.)
I'll start with a good one: The Jax & Daxter Trilogy Movie (with Character Commentary by Daxter himself!)
So, if you are willing to spend an hour and thirty minutes watching a compilations of clips
from the previous three JAK games, with Daxter (voiced by Max Casela, making it OFFICIAL, not Fan-Made)
giving "color commentary" on the whole thing..then, click the link and Enjoy.
Also, I am including: Daxter Death Commentary (and, other fun animations)
which is a fan-made video that is a compilation of all the witty one-lines Daxter says if Jak dies (some of with breaks the 4th wall)
Make no mistake, though. Dracon's backstory is ORIGINAL.
he a "dojan" dragon (a type of dragon that naturally resembles a lizard, just is able to magically transform into a "real" dragon for a short period of time. TEN MINUTES)
and, due to his greed and cowardice, was boot out of his colony. left to wander the Equestrian wilderness.
He would have been killed LONG ago, if not for the fact that he has sharp wit and enough cleverness and cunning to outsmart a fox.
in BLAD. he meets Alex Cosmos (plus, Alex Jr.) and deciding that it's much safer AND
to travel with somebody BIGGER
than him, he managed to buy his way into being a traveling companion by convincing Alex Sr. that he needs a "foalsitter" in order to get things done.
When Chrysalis joined the team, he wasn't too keen on the idea on sharing space with a changeling queen (former or not)
BUT, if he wanted to keep traveling with company. he had to suck it up, and tolerate sharing space with somepony who keeps joking about skinning him and eating him.
Dracon later meets up with the only other dragon friend of ponies (Spike), and the become fast friends.
So, there you have it, Folks.
I hope this answered any questions you MIGHT
have had on one of my favorite characters.
